Human-as-Sensor (HaaS)

Strategic decision making & On-site reporting


Human-as-a-Sensor utilizes human observations, activities and stored facts.

Important artefacts are e.g. who does, what does, where does or when does. When human-made observations are reported, the system immediately moves the information forward and can begin to resolve the problem before it occurs. This way, the number, location, history and availability of the components on the field are known by all.

On-site reporting

Semipassive NFC tag

Preventive maintenance

IoE by TKE enable HaaS implementation

When all information is reported in the field and collected on the same platform, data exploitation increases significantly. IoE by TKE provide a common, accessible platform for both automatically collected data and human observations from different locations in one place.

On-site reporting

On-site reporting is challenging because people, equipment and materials move on the field, that might have a significant impact on the workflow. Often the problem is that the crucial information remains only in the knowledge of individuals or those who are present.

Icons make it easy for a person to decribe any flaws or damage. Intuitive icons categorize information in the right place, without people having to make difficult choices. For instance, you can use more informal text or a photo to get more information about the report. The system automatically captures the time and user. If done manually, often some important information may not be reported.

Sensing with semipassive NFC tags

Semipassive NFC tag is a great solution when looking for ways that don’t require full telematics approach. Nice supplement for applications where passive tags are not sufficient but full fledged telematics is overkill.

Semipassive tags enable high performance at low cost with the use of external sensor with passive NFC communication. Advantage of such approach enables flexible on-demand connectivity for cost sensitive and entry level measurements. Semipassive NFC tags are intrinsically supported by mainstream mobile terminal devices.
